Tåsinge

Tåsinge is a Danish island south of Funen and is famous for its castle, Valdemars Slot, which was also the setting for the death of Elvira Madigan and Sixten Sparre. Although it was constructed by Christian IV in 1643, it became the property of Niels Juel, the hero of the navy, in 1678, and was redesigned as a baroque-style building. It is open to the public, but the castle is also used as a concert venue, a gallery and place for weddings. The castle has an excellent restaurant in the basement which also features a yacht museum and a tea house. Check website for opening times.
